Leopard vs. Porcupine

(YouTube link)

A young leopard is curious about this strange-looking animal that isn't afraid of him. The porcupine might be afraid, but he has his own defense system. Neither seems to be aware or care that the encounter takes place in the middle of a road with tourists on both sides. I believe this all takes place in Kruger National Park in South Africa. -via Say OMG

It's always fascinated me how plants & animals naturally evolved needle-sharp bits (rose thorns, porcupine quills, snake fangs (retractable, no less!)), yet humans took a whole long time to chip rocks into something approaching lethal sharpness.
